Scott Nordahl always excelled in academics and athletics. Graduating in the top 10 of his class, he could have gone to college almost anywhere. But when it came to picking a school, Scott knew that the value of being close to home, and saving significant dollars on tuition, made sense to him.

“I grew up in Elma, about 30 minutes outside of Olympia,” said Scott. In the quiet town of just over 3,000, Scott’s impressive GPA and skills on the soccer field were getting noticed. “I was passionate about playing soccer and even earned league recognition for my performance on the field.” When Scott graduated from high school in 2006, he was unsure what his next steps would be, and then found a path at SPSCC. “That summer I attended tryouts for SPSCC's Clippers Men’s Soccer program—and earned a spot on the roster.” He enrolled in math and science classes to sharpen his skills to eventually enter a science or engineering program at a four year university. Scott continued to excel in school and on the field, earning him a scholarship that reduced his tuition for two years at SPSCC. He also worked hard to pay for the tuition that wasn’t covered through scholarships. “In my second year I was able to use the work study program to earn money as an equipment manager for the soccer team while I was a player.” After graduating in from SPSCC in 2008, Scott swiftly transferred to Western’s chemistry program with the encouragement of an SPSCC professor. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry in 2011 and found an opportunity at a startup research company in Spokane, WA: Iasis Molecular Sciences. “We are currently developing antimicrobial technology, which we intend to implement into medical devices to prevent and treat healthcare acquired infections in the near future.” He’s worked for Iasis as a Research Chemist for the past five years and is extremely passionate about the company’s work and his role. And it was his time at SPSCC that really sparked a passion in the sciences that led to his next steps to Western and a career. Scott earned an Associate of Arts degree, a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, and is now working successfully in his field. Attending SPSCC allowed Scott to stay with his parents for a few more years and commute from home. He also felt good about paying less for tuition than he would at a university while determining a career path. spscc.edu/inspired This catalog is produced for informational purposes only.

Advancing Equity. Embracing Diversity.

The Diversity and Equity Center (DEC) The Center for Student Success (Building 22), Room 270 360-596-5383

The Diversity and Equity Center (DEC) supports specific programs and initiatives that in turn support the success of all students — particularly those who come from backgrounds that are underrepresented in higher education. The DEC works with students, faculty and staff to provide educational programs that enhance our competency to interact with the many diverse identities, cultures and backgrounds present at SPSCC.

Safe Zone Team A Safe Zone is a friendly and secure location that offers immediate assistance for any SPSCC community member who feels they are the victim of bias. Members of the campus community can go to a Safe Zone office when they feel that their safety is immediately threatened and/or have been on the receiving end of bias of any kind. Students can report a bias incident/hate crime in a Safe Zone office. The occupant of the office will have reporting forms and has been trained to assist people in need. A bias incident is an act that is committed against a person in whole or in part because of the victim’s actual or perceived race, gender identity, gender, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or religion. A hate crime is a crime that is motivated by bias. Bias affects people of all ethnic groups, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, and abilities. All campus members should feel free to report incidents of bias, even if they feel they don’t rise to the level of a crime. Reports help SPSCC keep track of the types of incidents that are occurring and direct our resources to making SPSCC safer and more inclusive for all. Reports can be submitted anonymously. Report a bias incident by:

The DEC is open for all who want to build community and understanding across differences. The DEC provides a welcoming space for people of all identities, peer mentoring, and various events intended to raise awareness about issues impacting the diverse students of SPSCC. Come by anytime for coffee, tea, conversation and community.

Students transferring to South Puget Sound Community College may be given appropriate credit for college-level work completed at post-secondary institutions accredited by one of the regional associations of colleges and universities. Additional transfer credit may be granted through Credit for Non-Traditional Learning (see page 112). How to Transfer Credits To transfer credit from other colleges or universities, students should request OFFICIAL transcripts from all previous colleges and submit through approved electronic processes or in an unopened and sealed envelope to Enrollment Services along with a completed Application for Transfer Credit. > Credits involving technical or professional education must be no more than 10 years old. > Only courses with passing grades may transfer. > Credits accepted in transfer are not computed in the South Puget Sound Community College grade point average. Transfer Requirements for Other Colleges Transferability of any course and credits earned at South Puget Sound Community College is determined by the college or university to which the student is transferring. Students are responsible for becoming familiar with the specific requirements of the school they wish to transfer to, and are encouraged to talk with both advisors at South Puget Sound Community College and an advisor at each prospective school to research transfer possibilities. Transferability of credits does not guarantee automatic admission to any particular baccalaureate institution, and specific questions regarding admission and transfer should be directed toward each respective school.

The One Stop The Center for Student Success (Building 22) and Lacey Campus 360-596-5241 | enroll@spscc.edu

From help applying for college and financial aid to applying for graduation, our One Stop aims to be the one-stop-shop to get you started toward the skills you need for the life you want. Our Olympia Campus One Stop is housed in the Center for Student Success. On our Lacey Campus, the One Stop is located inside Building 1. Both locations are ready to help you apply to SPSCC, sign up for classes, assist with financial aid, get help with Veterans education benefits, and more.

1. Web-enhanced, face-to-face classes use a learning management system (LMS) to support a class where instruction happens in a classroom on campus. The LMS can also serve as an alternative way to deliver instruction in the event of an emergency situation. Web-enhanced, face-to-face classes will use the learning management system for communication between the instructor and students, collaboration among students and to post course documents including syllabi, required and recommended readings, and assignments. 2. Hybrid classes transfer a percentage of face-to-face learning to online instruction, replacing classroom lectures with video lectures, or in-class discussions with discussion forums, for instance. The percentage of the instruction offered online depends on the course. Students are expected to attend face-to-face class sessions in a hybrid course and complete online instruction and assignments as specified in the instructor’s syllabus. 3. Online classes offer instruction that is entirely online, though they may also require tests to be taken at proctored sites. Online classes may sometimes require synchronous online sessions, when all the students in a class will be required to log in at specific times. Any online classes that include proctored tests or synchronous class sessions will indicate those requirements in the online course schedules. Students can also take online courses from other community colleges in Washington state through a consortium called Washington Online (WAOL). Go to waol.org for details about courses offered at other community colleges.

Tuition, Fees and Registration Washington residents pay regular in-state tuition. A resident student is one who has been living in the state of Washington for at least one year prior to the commencement of the quarter for which the student has registered, and has established an intention to become a bona fide resident of the state for other than educational purposes. Special consideration is given to military personnel, recent veterans, their spouses and dependents, refugees and undocumented students who graduated high school or the equivalent in Washington state. Contact Enrollment Services for more information at enroll@spscc.edu. Tuition and fees are due approximately three weeks before the start of the quarter. Actual dates will be posted online and at the One Stop. Tuition rates are set by the Legislature. Current tuition rates and due dates are published each quarter online at spscc.edu/pay-for-college. The college charges a quarterly $20 matriculation fee, and a quarterly technology fee at the following rate: a student in 1-9 credits $35; stu­dents in 10 or more credits $45; ABE/ESL/GED/Parent Co-op students $10. An additional per-credit fee of $6 is assessed for the first 10 credits per quarter. This additional fee was established by a vote of the students to cover costs of the Student Union Building and the Health and Wellness Center. Associated Student Programs (ASP) fee for Running Start students is $5 per credit. For up-to-date information, see the quarterly publication Advance, visit spscc.edu, or contact the Business Office at 360-596-5246. A course fee is charged for specific classes and is displayed in the class schedule. Some courses have specific laboratory and/or special fees. These fees are listed in the online class schedule. Online and hybrid courses at South Puget Sound Community College require a student technology fee and use a Learning Management System (LMS) to assist in delivering course content.

Access and Options We offer a variety of ways to take classes, so there’s bound to be a fit for your schedule. This includes traditional classroom settings, online courses, hybrids that blend both, and web-enhanced courses, which still meet in person, but have online components.

Students Rights and Responsibilities The college provides for the rights of the individual student and the college community through official college policies. The codification of these policies protects individuals and groups of students with procedures that deal effectively with issues of individual and community rights. Students are expected to respect the laws of local, state and federal authorities. Admission to the college carries with it the expectation that students will conduct themselves as responsible members of the college community, that they will comply with the rules and regulations of the college, maintain high standards of integrity and honesty, respect the rights, privileges and property of other members of the college community, and that they will not interfere with legitimate college affairs. Copies of the code setting forth student rights and responsibilities as adopted by the Board of Trustees are available from the Vice President for Student Services, from the Office of Student Life and online at spscc.edu/students. Student Handbooks are provided at all new student advising sessions and are available in the Office of Student Life or online at spscc.edu/students.

Student Privacy In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), South Puget Sound Community College enforces guidelines concerning information about the student’s permanent educational record, and governs the conditions of its disclosure. Except as otherwise indicated, SPSCC will not provide information contained in student records in response to inquiries unless the student has given consent to the college in writing. The consent must indicate a specific party to release records, must indicate the specific records that can be released, and is good for one year unless otherwise noted. Exception will be made if knowledge of the information is necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals or disclosure is required by law.

Integrated Learning Opportunities Lacey Core Courses At the Lacey campus, English, Math, HDEV 101, and courses from the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences areas are brought together to provide a cross-instructional experience within a thematic concept. Professors who teach Core Courses have co-planned these and some course materials are shared between them.  Each quarter, Student Life sponsors the Lacey Luncheon Series, which provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the quarterly theme outside of the classroom.  The quarter culminates in the Lacey Student Conference where students participate in poster presentations to other students, faculty and staff.  The Lacey Core also builds in opportunities for students to learn about and use college services that are essential to student success.

Olympia Learning Communities At the Olympia campus, students have the opportunity to enroll in learning communities, or “links,” in which two or more courses are combined in the same classroom. Students register and earn credits for each of the courses linked in the learning community. The courses are often taught by multiple professors, each bringing their own discipline and expertise to the learning community. Students spend all of their class time together, integrating different disciplines and subjects (such as Psychology and English). Learning communities increase student engagement and deepen learning, creating a cohesive and supportive community of students and professors. See the quarterly online schedule at spscc.edu for a list of courses offered as learning communities.

Running Start Program The Running Start program is an instructional partnership between community and technical colleges and high schools in Washington state. The program allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to attend college classes while still in high school. The students

The packages are a combination of federal, state, institutional and community resources. Financial aid is awarded within federal, state and institutional guidelines. No student is denied aid on the basis of sex, gender and gender identity, race, color, religion, national origin or physical disability. Student Financial Services can provide information and in-person assistance in completing financial aid forms. Since the application process can be lengthy to complete, students are advised to begin the process as early as possible. Application deadlines are available in Student Financial Services or online. To be eligible for financial aid funds, a student must be pursuing a college degree or certificate program that is financial-aid eligible and have completed a high school diploma or GED, or have completed secondary school education in a home school setting that is treated as a home school or private school under state law, or meet federal ability-to-benefit guidelines.

To qualify for the degree, the student must satisfy the general requirements of the college and complete a minimum of 90 quarter credits in courses numbered 100 or above with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better. A class can only count once toward General Education Requirements. For example, IIS 125 will satisfy either Humanities or Social Science course requirements, but not both. Each student should plan a program that meets the requirements and policies of the transfer college or university with assistance from an advisor. For program planning purposes, students are advised that the DTA transfers to four-year colleges and universities, but it may not meet specific department requirements. Some of the general education courses are specified as a result of the transfer agreement, such as chemistry and biology. For details, see degree requirements on page 26 and the Associate in Biology Direct Transfer.

To qualify for the degree, the student must satisfy the general requirements of the college and complete a minimum of 90 quarter credits in courses numbered 100 or above with a grade point average of 2.0 or better. Sixty-five of the 90 credits come from the General Education Requirements for the Associate in Arts & Science-Direct Transfer Agreement. Some of the general education courses are specified as a result of the transfer agreement, such as economics. Twenty of the 90 credits are designated business-specific courses required for the baccalaureate-receiving institution.

Associate in Nursing DTA/MRP The Associate in Nursing DTA/MRP prepares a student for licensure as a registered nurse through Washington State community and technical colleges, as well as for entry into a Bachelor of Science in Nursing completion degree.

Associate in Pre-Nursing DIRECT TRANSFER AGREEMENT (DTA)/MAJOR RELATED PROGRAM (MRP) (90 credits) PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Based on a state-wide transfer agreement, this pathway is applicable to students planning to prepare for upper division Bachelor of Science in Nursing and enter as a junior at most baccalaureate institutions in the State of Washington. The courses outlined are considered course equivalents to the similarly required lower-division courses offered at the receiving baccalaureate institution. PROGRAM OUTCOMES: General education introduces students to the content and methodology of the major areas of knowledge – communication, the humanities and fine arts, the natural sciences, mathematics and the social sciences – and helps them develop the intellectual skills that will make them more effective life-long learners. The College’s general education program is intended to meet the transfer requirements of the four-year colleges and universities as outlined in the Intercollegiate Relations Commission Handbook.

In planning this degree students need to work closely with their advisor or a counselor as although the Associate in Pre Nursing Degree transfers to four-year colleges and universities in Washington State, it may not meet all university requirements. To earn an Associate in Pre Nursing Degree all courses taken must be at college level (numbered 100 or above). A minimum of 85 of the 90 credits required for the degree must be from the General Education Requirements for the Associate in Arts & Science –Direct Transfer Agreement. Copies of the list are available in Building 22 or on line at spscc.edu. A maximum of 5 credits will be allowed for courses numbered 100 or above that are not on the GE list. A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above in all college-level courses required.


Associate in Science Track 1 (90 credits)

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Associate in Science-Transfer is designed for persons interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to study science or engineering. Students who successfully complete degree requirements and elective courses recommended for their specific area of study will transfer to many four-year degree programs with junior standing. Compared to the Associate of Arts Degree, this degree delays some general education distribution credits until the junior or senior year in order to make room in the transfer degree for required freshman and sophomore-level science sequences. AS-T Track 1 focuses on chemistry, biology, environmental and natural resource sciences and geology and earth sciences. PROGRAM OUTCOMES: General education introduces students to the content and methodology of the major areas of knowledge – communication, the humanities and fine arts, the natural sciences, mathematics and the social sciences – and helps them develop the intellectual skills that will make them more effective life-long learners. The College’s general education program is intended to meet the transfer requirements of four-year colleges

Associate in General Studies (90 credits)

The Associate in General Studies (AGS) gives students the opportunity to design their own educational programs. This degree was developed as a non-transfer degree so students could have more flexibility in selecting courses to best fit their interests or emphasize particular areas of study not regularly offered by the college. The fact that the AGS is not designed as a transfer degree does not mean an AGS graduate cannot transfer to a four-year college or university. However, students should be aware that their transcripts will be subjected to a course-by-course analysis to determine how many courses will be accepted by the four-year institution. Students seeking this degree must have prior approval from an instructional Dean or the Vice President of Instruction and must design their AGS programs under the supervision of an advisor. DEGREE REQUIREMENTS: A minimum of 90 credits numbered 100 or above must be completed to qualify for the Associate in General Studies degree, as described in the distribution and electives requirements sections below.

Academic Regulations

The Academic Year

The academic year at South Puget Sound Community College is divided into three quarters of approximately 11 weeks each. An 8-week summer session is also offered.

Credit Hours In general, a lecture class that meets for one hour per week for one quarter will earn the successful student one credit; a lecture class that meets five hours per week for one quarter will earn the student five credits. Laboratory and certain other courses vary from this pattern. The quarter hours of credit for each course are shown after the course titles in the Course Descriptions section of this catalog beginning on page 73. Students earn credit only for those courses in which they are officially registered for credit. Credit is not received for courses in which the student enrolls on an audit basis.

Attendance Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are registered, including the first class session, and may be dropped for not attending during the first week. Students who decide to stop attending classes should not assume that they will be dropped for non-attendance. Students must officially withdraw from/drop classes to avoid financial obligations or receiving a failing grade for the class. Students can drop/withdraw from classes by completing an Add/ Drop form and either submitting to the One Stop or en­roll@spscc.edu from their my.spscc email. Instructors may set an attendance requirement for each class. It is the responsibility of the student to know and comply with each individual class requirement. Student Absence for Faith or Conscience Per RCW 1.16.050, students are entitled to two days of excused absences per calendar year for reasons of faith or conscience or for organized activities conducted under the auspices of a religious denomination, church, or religious organization. >S  tudents’ grades may not be adversely impacted by absences authorized under this policy. >E  ach absence under this policy must be taken as a whole day, i.e. the day may not be divided into hours and taken piecemeal. >S  tudents must complete the faith & conscience form and submit it to the One Stop no later than two weeks prior to the requested dates. The College shall make no judgment about the legitimacy of reasons of faith or conscience. Absence for Short Term Military Assignments

The student may not be dropped for non-attendance and no grade for the student’s work may be issued until the student has been given the opportunity to make up the work and/or participation. Written verification that the person is being, or has been, ordered to service must be provided to the College. Requests must be made in writing and include a copy of military orders.

Drop Versus Withdrawal: >S  tudents can drop a class during the first 10 (eight in summer) days of the quarter. When a class is dropped, it will not appear on the student transcript. Students that drop a class during the first five days of the quarter (four during summer term), will receive a full refund. Refund dates can be located on the Academic Dates Calendar at spscc.edu/students/calendars. >W  ithdrawing from a class occurs after the 10th (eighth in summer) day of the quarter. Students who withdraw from a class receive a grade of W. Withdrawal grades do not impact Grade Point Average. If students are receiving financial aid or VA education benefits, they should consult the Financial Aid office before choosing this option. Withdrawal dates can be located on the Academic Calendar at spscc. edu/students/calendars.

Auditing a Class Students who choose to audit a course may do so prior to registration and up to the 10th day of the quarter with the instructor’s signed permission. Auditing a course means the student must honor all attendance policies of that course as agreed upon with the instructor. Furthermore, the instructor may determine whether or not the student must complete the required assignments, take course examinations or participate in in-class activities. Students who audit classes are responsible for full tuition and fees. Upon completion of the quarter a grade of N is assigned to audited courses. Financial Aid, Running Start, and VA education benefits funding cannot pay for audited courses.

Substituting a Course Students may petition to substitute a required course in a program of study by requesting a Special Enrollment Form from the One Stop center. The form must be completed and signed by an advisor and the ap­propriate division dean. The form will be reviewed to ensure similarity between requirements and courses substituted.

Course Waivers Waivers are used infrequently and only when other alternatives do not apply or are not available. To seek a course waiver, students must request a Special Enrollment Form from the One Stop. The form must be completed and signed by their advisor and the appropriate division dean. The form must be turned into the One Stop for review and application toward graduation.

Per RCW 28B.10.270, students called to active duty for a period of 30 days or less may not be penalized for missed class time and must be provided the opportunity to make up work, labs, and exams within a reasonable period of time and without prejudice after they return.

Independent Study and Special Projects Independent study and special projects give students mastery of a body of knowledge or skills not covered in regularly scheduled classes. Each option involves a contract developed between student and instructor with specific readings, projects or written works that must be completed. The instructor will state the criteria for evaluating performance in the contract. Special project courses require a contract between the student and an instructor. The contract identifies the ways in which students will conduct a series of tasks, experiments or learning activities. These activities must be related to your educational goals and be supervised by an instructor. To be eligible for independent study or special projects, students must: >H  ave a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 and have completed a minimum of 15 credits of college-level work at SPSCC; > Attempt five or fewer credits of independent study or special projects during one quarter; > Not exceed a maximum of 15 independent study or special projects credits toward a SPSCC degree; >R  equest an Individual Agreement or special project form from the One Stop on the Olympia or Lacey campuses. The contract must be signed by the sponsoring instructor and the appropriate division dean. Courses will be set up by the Instruction Office and Enrollment Services. Students will be notified by email after being registered for the appropriate courses.

Special Projects Special project courses require a contract between the student and an instructor. The contract identifies the ways in which students will conduct a series of tasks, experiments or learning activities. These activities must be related to your educational goals and be supervised by an instructor. Students can obtain an Individual Agreement Form from the Enrollment Services Office and complete the contract portion of the form, then have the contract signed by the sponsoring instructor and the appropriate division dean. The special project course will be set up by the Instruction Office staff and Enrollment Services. A maximum of five credits in special projects can be earned in one quarter; a maximum of 15 credits can be earned in residence at the college.

Credit for Non-Traditional Learning Credit for Non-Traditional Learning (CNTL) is awarded in the following areas: Credit by Testing, Prior Experiential Learning, Extra-Institutional Learning, and Course Challenges. General guidelines for the awarding of CNTL would be as follows. Credit by Testing – The College accepts credit through Advanced Placement (AP) and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). The College also has a process to award Credit by Examination though a challenge exam. This policy is found earlier in this Academic Regulations section. A maximum of 45 credits will be awarded by credit by examination.

112

2017-2018 South Puget Sound Community College Catalog

>A  dvanced Placement – Students may receive credit for Advanced Placement scores of “3” or higher. Advanced placement grade reports should be requested from the College Board and sent to the Enrollment Services office. Once received, the student will submit a Transfer of Credit form request for the AP score to be evaluated. AP coursework completed through the high school class will not be accepted for credit without qualifying test scores. >C  ourse Challenge – Students may receive credit for a course by satisfactorily completing a challenge examination. Students should register for the course and indicate to the instructor the desire to challenge the course. Instructional divisions may reserve the right to deny challenges for specific courses. An exam is administered and graded, with the grade recorded at the end of the quarter. The student cannot participate in the class in an attempt to raise the grade. >C  ollege Level Examination Program (CLEP/DANTES) – Examinations are accepted if students score above the ACE recommended score (normally 50). The distribution of credits must be no more than 10 credits in each of the following areas: English, natural sciences, mathematics, humanities and social sciences/history. Students are responsible for forwarding CLEP exam records directly from the College Board to the Enrollment Services Office. Test scores in the General Examination are not equated with specific course descriptions in the college catalog. Students with English scores above the 50 are not exempt from ENGL& 101 or 102 requirements. CLEP English scores and credits can be applied toward communications or humanities credit with the exception of ENGL& 101 and 102. Acceptable test scores and credits granted can be applied to the General Education List requirements. Students may receive credit in areas in which you have not already earned 10 credits. Students who have earned college course credit prior to taking the General Examination may earn credit in each of the five examination areas to the extent that the total course credits and examination credits do not exceed 10 in any general area. Prior Experiential Learning – Credit is awarded through assessing knowledge and skills gained through work and life experience that correspond to the student learning outcomes of some existing professional/technical courses at South Puget Sound Community College. Credit for Alternative Learning Experience (CALE or called ExtraInstitutional Learning by the state) – Awarded through documented third-party training, industry certifications or occupational crosswalks. The training must be formal and documented. Transfer of military credit is done through the Joint Services Transcript (JST) and based on the recommendation of the American Council on Education (ACE). Students receiving College credit for military service through their JST or based on their Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) must still earn credits consistent with the College residency policy in order to be granted a degree or certificate. No more than 25% of credits used for a degree can come from CALE. Students are charged a $25 application fee and $10 per credit for CALE (fee waived for military transcripts). Advanced Standing – Students may enroll in an advanced course when an evaluation of previous experience and education indicates that credit could be given for lower-level courses in the program. Credit will be given up to a maximum of 45 quarter credit hours only with completion of the higher-level courses with a grade of “C” or better, or with a grade that is agreed upon through a specific agreement with area high schools. The request for advanced standing can be started by completion of the special enrollment form found in the One Stop. The form must be signed by an advisor and the appropriate division dean to be reviewed for eligibility.


Grading Policy

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Instructors are responsible for explaining their grading policies at the beginning of each course. This will be in the form of a course syllabus. The following is the college definition of each grade: A (4.00) Superior achievement

A grade point average is a measure of the student’s overall academic performance. It is computed on both a quarterly and cumulative basis from those courses in which the student received grades. A grade point average is calculated by dividing the grade points earned by the number of credit hours attempted.

A- (3.67)

For example:

B+ (3.33)

Course

B (3.00) High achievement

OFTEC 108 3

2.0

(3x2) = 6

B- (2.67)

ENGL& 111 5

3.0

(5x3) = 15

C+ (2.33)

HIST& 116 5

4.0

(5x4) = 20

C (2.00) Satisfactory achievement

Total

C- (1.67) D+ (1.33) D (1.00) Minimum achievement F (0.00) Failure to meet minimum course requirement I  Incomplete. Student has not completed specific requirements for a class due to extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control assigned at the instructor's discretion. No grade points calculated. (See note #1) N Audit. No grade points calculated. P Progressing. No grade points calculated. S Satisfactory completion at or above the 2.0 level. No grade points calculated. (See note #2) U Unsatisfactory completion of the course below a 2.0 level. No grade points calculated. (See note #2) V At the instructor’s discretion, this grade may be assigned when a student ceases attendance before sufficient data to evaluate has been submitted. Student must have stopped attending by the 40th day. No grade points calculated at SPSCC; other schools may convert V’s to F’s when determining transfer eligibility or recalculating GPA’s. W Student withdrawal; no grade points calculated. Y Course in progress. For continuous enrollment courses and courses with calendars that extend beyond one quarter. No grade points calculated. 1. Prior to issuing an “I” grade, the professor must complete an “Incomplete Agreement” form indicating what requirements must be completed, the expected completion date and method of evaluation. The form must be signed by the instructor and the student. Failure to complete the requirements in the agreed upon time frame (no longer than the end of the subsequent quarter) will result in a grade of “F” for the class.

Hours Grade Grade Points

13

41

Dividing 41 by 13 gives a grade point average of 3.15. The cumulative GPA over multiple quarters is calculated in the same way using all courses in which a numerical grade was earned.

Grade Reports Students may locate final grades at the end of each quarter online in their mySPSCC portal and unofficial transcript. Official transcripts are withheld if the student has not fulfilled all obligations to the college, financial and otherwise. Official transcripts can be ordered online at spscc.edu/students/transcripts-verifications.

Academic Standards Policy It is the intent of the college to offer programs of study in which students can succeed. Every attempt is made, through testing, counseling and advising, to guide each student into a program of study that is appropriate to his or her level of ability and interest. Standards are enforced to ensure satisfactory academic progress. Enrollment Services monitors the aca¬demic progress of students. All students are expected to maintain a quarterly cumulative GPA of 2.0 for credits attempted and a minimum college-level GPA of 2.0 must be maintained for graduation with a degree or certificate. Academic deficiency is defined as failure to maintain the minimum grade point average requirements, as stated above. After the first quarter in which a student is academically deficient, he or she will be placed on academic warning. After the second consecutive quarter in which a student is academically deficient, the student will be placed on academic probation. After the third consecutive quarter in which a student is academically deficient, the student will be placed on academic dismissal. Dismissed students must sit out for a quarter and go through the readmissions procedure. Running Start students can't count summer quarter as the quarter in which they sit out.

2. Some courses will be graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory. Certain courses are graded in this manner due to the nature or content of the course. Faculty may offer this option in classes that are generally evaluated with letter grades by including the option in their course syllabus.

South Puget Sound Community College Catalog 2017-2018

Readmission Procedures

Vice President’s List

Students who are dismissed from the college for academic deficiency must complete the appeal process. A student must meet with an educational planner in the Advising Center to discuss course selection and success strategies for future quarters. Students must complete an Academic Standards Review form prior to this meeting. Appeal plans are then forwarded to the Dean of Enrollment Services for final review.

To receive the Vice President’s List designation, students must earn both of the following:

All appeal steps must be completed prior to the third day of the quarter a student wishes to re-enroll.

Grade Renewal Grade renewal is a process of eliminating courses from the computation of the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) under the listed conditions. Grade renewals cannot be done on “V” and/or “W” grades, which are not computed into the overall GPA. Students who receive financial aid may jeopardize their future eligibility to receive funding when requesting grade renewal and should contact Financial Aid before seeking this option. Petition for Grade Renewal Forms should be submitted to the One Stop on main campus or Lacey Campus. Grade Renewal for Repeated Courses: Eliminate credits and grade(s) from computation of GPA for courses that have been repeated at SPSCC. An “R” will appear next to the lower grade and won’t be calculated into the GPA. Grade Renewal for Unrepeated Courses: Eliminate credits and grade(s) from computation of GPA for courses that have not been repeated. All grades will continue to appear on the transcript. An “ * ” (asterisk) will appear next to the course that is no longer calculated into the GPA. All credits taken prior to the requested quarter for grade forgiveness will also be eliminated from GPA and credit computation. In order to qualify for this option: >A  period of two years must have elapsed since the grades were earned or the student has changed the program of study; >T  he student has attained a quarterly GPA of 2.5 or greater in two consecutive quarters at SPSCC since earning the initial grades; >T  he student has not withdrawn from more than five credits per quarter since returning to SPSCC;

Academic Honors Each quarter South Puget Sound Community College recognizes outstanding academic achievement by placing students on the President’s List or Vice President’s List. A notation of the award will be placed on the student’s permanent transcript.

President’s List To receive the President’s List designation, students must earn both of the following: 1. A quarterly grade point average of 4.0. 2. A minimum of 12 graded, college-level credits (S grades not included).

114

2017-2018 South Puget Sound Community College Catalog

1. A quarterly grade point average of 3.60 to 3.99. 2. A minimum of 12 graded, college-level credits (S grades not included). Part-time students are eligible each time they complete 12 college-level credits and their GPA falls within the designated list for the quarter. Part-time students need to notify the Office of the Vice President for Student Services each time they qualify. Vice President’s List and President’s List notations will be posted on the transcript for the quarter in which the 12 college-level credits are completed.

Graduation Honors Students in degree programs who achieve cumulative GPAs of 3.75 to 3.89 in all college-level courses will be graduated with High Honors. Stu­dents in degree programs who achieve cumulative GPAs of 3.9 to 4.0 in all college-level courses will be graduated with Highest Honors.

Limitations of Liability The college’s total liability for claims arising from a contractual relationship with a student in any way related to classes or programs shall be limited to the tuition and expenses paid by the student to the college for those classes and programs. In no event shall the college be liable for any special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, loss of earning or profit.

Equal Opportunity Policy South Puget Sound Community College is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to create a working environment that includes and respects cultural, racial, ethnic, sexual orientations, and gender identity diversity. Women, racial and ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, persons over age 40, disabled and Vietnam era veterans, and people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are encouraged to apply. The College complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Applicants needing accommodation in the application process in an alternative format may contact the Human Resources office at 360596-5500. The College is committed to enhancing the diversity of our faculty and staff, as well as our student population. We strongly encourage applicants to apply without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, disability, or any other legal protected status. SPSCC is a drug-free workplace.

Americans with Disabilities Act Accommodation Procedures The College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations in accordance with applicable federal and state laws and regulations and the collective bargaining agreements for eligible individuals with documented disabilities in the most timely and effective manner possible. It is the intent of the college to ensure that every employee (faculty, exempt staff, represented and non-represented classified staff) and/or applicant for employment who makes a request for accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, Chapter 49.60 Revised Code Washington, and Washington Administrative Code 162-22 is promptly and properly advised of the accommodation process and reasonably accommodated. The college will follow the procedures outlined in the Reasonable Accommodation Procedures. For represented classified employees, the college will comply with the collective bargaining agreement and with provisions of WAC 357-46 for nonrepresented classified employees. Employees requesting accommodation must cooperate and engage in conversation with their supervisor regarding the need for, and possible form of, any accommodation. The employee will complete and sign a Reasonable Accomodation Request form. The college will determine whether an employee is eligible for a reasonable accommodation and the accommodation to be provided.

Transfering Credits and Degrees Transferability of credits and degrees earned at SPSCC is subject to the policies of the receiving institution. SPSCC participates in many transfer agreements and academic courses numbered 100 and above are usually accepted by four-year colleges and universities. Students planning on transferring to another institution should work with an academic advisor in order to assist with course and degree selection.
